    Folk isn’t the answer either.

    Even though it’s preseason, it’s a win and I’ll take it. Thought the 1st team looked good in the 1st half. Still time left to clean up a few things. But I gotta tell you – I’m in love with a QB that sometimes scares the bejesus out of me. lol. Waiting to see the next HardKnocks to hear the appreciation speech he got from Koetter for that redzone “fail mary” he threw while falling backwards from what should have been a sack. Pretty sure that was a teachable moment better now than in September. Go Bucs!

      I think Jameis was trying to throw the ball out of the endzone but couldn’t get enough on the ball as he was being driven to the turf.

        scubog, you know I love the guy, but to be fair at minute 1:40 of his presser when asked about that throw he said “I thought somebody was going to get it”! It is a forgivable sin, but we all need to look forward to better judgment in the future. I believe he will. He also said he was hurt by that decision. Go Bucs!



          I hadn’t heard that. I was giving him the benefit of the doubt.

    A lot of good from the 1st team offense and just enough bad to bring the hype back down to Earth.
    -OL got really shaky after Dot went out with injury.
    -Doug looked great and ran hard with good vision.
    -Marpet handled himself well against some very good DT’s.
    -Jameis was fantastic on the majority of his drop backs. Was patient (OL blocked very well most of 1st half) and went through his reads for the best pass. Had 2 bad passes & 1 WTF ARE YOU DOING? pass.
    -I’ve read Mike has dealt with drops in TC and that TD drop was disappointing
    -OJ looked very smooth in his routes and catching the ball.

    Still work to do, but the offense is going in the right direction. Defense looked much sharper than last week. Still didn’t see much pressure from front 4 outside of McCoy.

    I only wish we had pulled the starters after the 1st quarter. I was looking forward to writing that the Bucs looked fantastic on both sides of the ball, as well as I have seen them play since the Chiefs game last year. Alas, the 2nd quarter rolled around. I will say that the run defense was consistently awesome all game. However, special teams were mediocre all game. As a whole I thought the Bucs offense and defense looked great in the 1st and 3rd quarters and awful in the 2nd and 4th quarters (run defense not withstanding).

      Rather them know what they need to do to look good and also learn what not to do when the games don’t matter, though. I thought it was a step in the right direction all around. Execution wise and mistake wise – just can’t keep making them.

    We have only scored 12 points in each of these games. Hopefully by the start of regular season we will more than double it.
